The latest upgrade of the USPS Teradata environment involved deployment of a Dual Active/High Availability infrastructure. This refers to the installation of a second system where data load activity is duplicated resulting in full data synchronization between the primary and secondary sites for disaster recovery and high service availability. With the additional facility, USPS can provide consistent and assured delivery of queries and reporting services required by the users of USPS data warehouse services, as well as enabling a load balancing of user demand between the two sites.
The USPS first engaged Teradata in 2000 to develop its Retail Data Mart, which included the consolidation of all point-of-service data into a single data repository. Since then, USPS has grown its Teradata system into a corporate EDW including a number of other business areas, such as financial management, operational decision support and marketing. USPS has also grown its usage of Teradata to support complex analyses as well as reporting to support their decision making processes.
